When Sean and Krissy first contacted us about photographing their rustic wedding at the Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms in VT, I was instantly excited. I’d seen so many weddings from this venue that I’d fallen in love with and after seeing Krissy’s Etsy shop, Cottage Farm, I knew this wedding would have some seriously gorgeous vintage styling. These two planned their New England wedding from their home in San Francisco, CA… and I can only imagine the challenges of planning such a big event from 3,000 miles away!
After doing a “first look” on the lawn in front of the Shelburne Farms Inn, we moved into the colorful flower garden with the mountains over Lake Champlain as the backdrop. Krissy wore a stunning gown with a brocade pattern and lace sleeves, and we couldn’t get enough detail photos of this amazing dress! When the weather refused to cooperate and starting getting misty, Krissy pulled out two clear bubble umbrellas for just such an occasion, and the photos turned out super cute. After their lakeside ceremony was over, guests were invited into the Coach Barn where tiny tea lights in glass globes hung from the ceiling and two long family style tables were set for dinner. Unique flowers decorated the tables, and included what I think were pitcher plants (which are those carnivorous plants that you took care of in grade school to see if they actually ate bugs). It looked like a fairytale. ;)
Congrats to Sean and Krissy… we had a lovely time documenting your big day and hope you’re enjoying the southern honeymoon! ;)
